While he denied the chokehold, he did admit to the catfight but instead instead of dodging it like your other standard-fare pussy celebrities, Dr Burke chose instead to spin the situation with a very sexy sense of humour:

Now THAT is Damage Control 101, savvy?
Oh - and can you believe The National Enquirer? Scoring scoop after scoop?
In the tabloid hierarchy, I think it"s safe to say the Enquirer is now head and shoulders over Life & Style, period.
